Liquidation sales began on Sunday.

Kansas-based Payless ShoeSource announced that they'll be closing all of their remaining 2100 locations nationwide, including three in St. Cloud. Liquidation sales began over the weekend.

According to USA Today, the closings mark the "biggest by a single chain this year and nearly doubles the number of retail stores set to close in 2019."

In a statement to USA Today, Payless ShoeSource says, "We expect all stores to remain open until at least the end of March and the majority will remain open until May."

The company will also be closing its online platforms; in fact, Payless.com is already no longer accepting online purchases.

Payless ShoeSource filed for bankruptcy protection in 2017.

Locations in Central Minnesota include:

St. Cloud - 3
Alexandra - 1
Glenwood - 1
Willmar - 1
Cokato - 1
Brainerd - 1
Hutchinson - 1
